  • Compact and portable

  • Does not extend

How GoPole Grenade Grip Rates:

  • Usefulness: 7/10 Great for holding onto your GoPro as you move around, but the Grenade Grip won’t give you a long-reaching shot.
  • Value: 10/10 Very good price for an essential accessory
  • Portability: 10/10 Very small and light, will fit easily into a camera bag or even your pocket. Optional wristband and carabineer attachments makes it even more adaptable.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10 Not as obtrusive as a selfie-stick and you can still get amazing footage from the hand-held distance.

Final Verdict:

You’re not always going to be able to mount your GoPro to some part of you, so having this handheld mount is a good investment. It’s especially portable and between the textured grip and optional wristband or carabineer attachment, GoPole makes it easy to hold on to. It’s a very good tool to have in your camera bag.
